API v3 /contacts - updated timestamp fields never update



I’m building an integration with one of our client applications and Active Campaign and am seeing some slightly strange behaviour with the contacts endpoint.

When I retrieve a contact object via the v3 API I can see that the updated_utc_timestamp field among others.

However, when I edit that contact by changing name or email in the Active Campaign UI, this field does not get updated in the data returned from the API - even though I can see the updated email address or name in the returned payload.

This also affects use of the filters[updated_after] filter as the updated contact never gets returned except when I specify the (incorrect) updated timestamp.

Is this a known issue, or does this field only get updated under certain conditions?

Thanks in advance!
